Petraeus to Testify Before Congress on Libya Friday

Former CIA Director David Petraeus(Chet Susslin)

November 15, 2012

Former CIA Director David Petraeus, who stepped down last week because of an extramarital affair, will testify before Congress this week on the terrorist attack in Libya that killed four Americans.

Petraeus will testify before the House Intelligence Committee at 7:30 a.m. on Friday in a closed-door hearing open only to lawmakers, the committee said in a statement on Wednesday night. He will also appear at 9 a.m. on Friday before the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to a release from the committee.

Meanwhile, the FBI agent who helped kick off the investigation that uncovered Petraeus’s affair and led to his resignation was identified by law enforcement colleagues on Wednesday as Frederick W. Humphries II, The New York Times reported.

 

Humphries reportedly took the initial complaint from Jill Kelley, a personal friend, about threatening, anonymous e-mails -- later discovered to be sent by Petraeus biographer Paula Broadwell -- that accused her of flirting with Petraeus. A spokesman for Kelley said she reported the e-mails to Humphries because she feared the sender was “stalking” Petraeus and Gen. John Allen, the commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan, The Times reported.

The complaint kicked off the investigation that uncovered the extramarital affair between Petraeus and Broadwell. The investigation also implicated Allen after the FBI discovered “potentially inappropriate” e-mails between him and Kelley. 

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misspelled the name of the former CIA Director. His name is David Petraeus. It also reported the wrong date for Petraeus's Senate testimony. He will appear on Friday.
